SOOCP (straight out of the cell phone).

This photo was taken on a recent trip to the Outer Banks. It had been overcast earlier in the morning, but the sun was just starting to break through the clouds and was reflecting in the water.

I took this (while leaning out of the passenger side window) with my cell phone, and it has not been edited in any way.

Although SOOC (straight out of the camera) shots are much preferred, I will occasionally straighten, crop, lighten or darken a picture. My edits are always very limited though.  Extreme photo-shopping makes for dramatic photos, but that’s rarely the effect I want.

Of course, we had our regular camera with us that day (and I took MANY pictures with it), but I used my cell phone for this one so I could send it to Marshall.

But, as with all my photos, I take no credit for this shot: we just happened to be in the right place at the right time.  With a cell phone.
